Safeguarding Key Messages

  • Child abuse can affect any child and may be carried out by anyone.  It is usually carried out by someone well known to the child.
  • Safeguarding is everybody's responsibility.
  • Abuse has a profound emotional and/or physical effect on not only the child, but also their families and the wider community.
  • All adults who work with children need to know what their responsibilities are.
  • Some groups of children seem to have an increased risk of abuse, for example disabled children, or children living in stressful, violent or chaotic situations.
  • The prevalence of abuse (most research suggests 10% of children are affected).

So remember:

  1. Recognise - be alert to the signs of abuse.
  2. Respond - make an appropriate approach or response to the child.
  3. Report - tell an agency responsible for the protection of children (Police/Health/Children's social Care/Education).
  4. Record - write down your concerns, sign and date them.  They may provide evidence at a later stage.
